Dolphin 7 Anonymous Mode – What It Is and Why You Need It
Written by Mscott Saturday, 15 October 2011
Hello and welcome! Today’s blog will focus on one very important setting in Dolphin 7. This setting is “Anonymous Mode” and it is critical to your member’s privacy that you turn it on.
We will begin by logging in to the Dolphin admin area. Next select “Advanced Settings” under the “Settings” sub-menu. Now click the “Profiles” tab. You will see the 7th option from the top labeled “Anonymous mode (no contact information)”. To turn it on place a check mark beside it and click “Save” at the bottom of the screen.
I would strongly suggest you turn this option on. With this option disabled, members have an option on the profiles “Action” menu titled “Get Email”
If the member selects “Get Email”, the other members personal email address is sent to them. This can have serious implications to you and your site if it is not stated in your privacy agreement that you allow members to see other members personal email addresses.
By turning this option on, you will have added piece of mind and your members will appreciate the fact that you are protecting their privacy also.
Until next time, happy social networking!
